Barcelona coach Tata Martino is confident Manchester United target Cesc Fabregas will stay at the Nou Camp.
The Red Devils are offering £35million for the midfielder, who netted twice in Barca's 8-0 destruction of visiting Santos in a preseason friendly on Friday night.
Martino said after the game: "I have spoken with Cesc and he told me what he thought.
"The idea of not counting on him doesn't enter my mind, but the player also has to decide.
"I dare to say that he will stay."
Fabregas's teammate Javier Mascherano is likewise optimistic the former Arsenal captain will stay with the Spanish champions.
He told Sky Sports News earlier this week: "I didn't talk to him but I think he is happy.
"It is difficult when you have to speak about the personal situation of other players because sometimes you don't know what they think.
"I see him here training and he is happy. He grew up in Barcelona and feels the call of the shirt.
"It is difficult when you grow up here to leave because Barcelona is a big team, a big city, really nice to live in and all his family is here.
"I think he is a really key player for us and I think the coach and the people who work here want to keep him."
